I have started to forward my Yahoo emails to Outlook without any bother (I didn't set up a pop Yahoo account in Outlook as this would require Yahoo email Plus). With my ISP accounts I can choose either to use passwords or let Outlook remember them. This is not an option with my webmail ie without going into tools/accounts and setting up a pop account. Are my webmails safe? If not how can I make them safer?
I have not set up a new email account. I have merely started to forward the webmail (Yahoo) so I can read it in Outlook. I have got a password for my webmail which I have to use to access my webmail when I am in Yahoo. But now I have arranged the forwarding, I can read my webmail in Outlook without using a password. I wondered if there were any risks in doing so.
As I understand the forwarding of emails, it means that the Yahoo emails are being forwarded to another of your email addresses which you then receive via Outlook. So the Yahoo emails are as secure as any of the other emails that the other email account is delivering to you.
lotvic, On reflection I think you are right. I did have to give Yahoo my main Sky email address to set up the forwarding so I suppose that is how they do it. I only use Sky for people I know. I use webmail for everybody else so if it now goes through Sky I shall have to start using a password for Sky to make the forwarding more secure. Thanks.
